How to I avoid getting root canals, crowns, etc.?

The key to minimizing your dental work is keeping up with your regular checkups and dental cleanings. For instance, if you have a small cavity, this can generally be fixed via a simple filling. However, if neglected, the cavity grows and will eventually require a crown to fix. From there the tooth goes on to become infected and now you need either a root canal. Eventually, your tooth is no longer salvageable and now you will lose the tooth and need a dental implant to replace it.

Periodic checkups and cleanings help us catch dental problems in early stages, before they have had a chance to get worse. This way that you can keep your beautiful smile for life without having to spend all of it in the dental chair!
